Congrats to Todd, who left Dallas and Channel 11 a few months back to take a gig with the San Antonio Express-News. He won a Lone Star Award from the Houston Press Club for a story he wrote for us last summer. About “Murder on the High Seas” the judges said:
His exceptional storytelling kept the reader riveted. Bensman has the ability to put the reader in the middle of the action–in this case aboard a boat full of starving, dehydrated,confused and angry refugees making their way toward the coast of Texas. He is a truly great reporter.
